What version of Go are you using (go version)?

$ go version
go version devel +f484e96 Fri Aug 30 00:10:31 2019 +0000 linux/amd64

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

Yes.

What did you do?

I tested the behavior of the gc given a chain of address taking operations (I know these are pretty contrived examples):

  1. https://godbolt.org/z/3zXWuG
  2. https://godbolt.org/z/-8Qr0N
  3. https://godbolt.org/z/_msJAW
  4. https://godbolt.org/z/czEAhU

What did you expect to see?

I expected functions 1/2 to compile to a simple return of -1 and 3/4 to a return of x.

What did you see instead?

Instead, all the functions contain unnecessary instructions:

  1. Extra mov through the variable x
  2. Extra mov through the variable x and extra nil check
  3. Extra nil check
  4. Extra nil check

What did you expect to see?

I expected all this functions to compile to a simple return of -1.

Even #3 and #4?
